Thumbnail Request, Please!

Hey, guys! I’m creating a new game called The Legend of Gim: Hidden Lands (Yes, GimGamer1 gave me permission). I’m going to work on a thumbnail, but I would like some more options to choose from. Here are the requirements:

  • Any GIM is ok, but they must be holding either a sword/shield combo (think Master Sword/Hylian Shield but designed a bit differently)…

Think this ^^^, just change it up a bit so it’s not these exactly. I don’t wanna get copyrighted XD

  • …or a Zapper. The GIM should also be looking back to the Point Of View (POV).
  • In the background, there should be a castle wreathed in fog, with skeletons/revenants around it (showing a curse on the land). The castle should have purple pennants fluttering from the battlements/flagpoles, too. The door should be propped open by a rock. Not broken, propped.
  • Foreground: The GIM should be standing on a rock in a plains/forest-like environment.
  • The sky should be overcast, but not rainy, but only around the castle. The rest should be sunny.
  • List the game maker as Gim Studios.
  • Include your credit wherever makes sense (If it’s a corner, or a side, go nuts, I don’t care!)
  • There should be water/black void separating the plains and the castle. If there’s water, there should be a shipwreck near the castle. If there’s void, have a broken (yet floating) bridge leading to it.

Other than that, go nuts! Thanks!

If I heart your comment/request, go ahead and start!

what is the point…

Also this thumbnail description sounds a lot like fruity-gim’s…

I can make one, but it does sound ridiculously similar to Fruity’s description.

…It does…? I’m confused right now. What?
I’m not trying to copy anyone, just get a thumbnail. And I’m bad at anything other than pixel art (and even then, I edit pictures more than I create them at this point (used for Pokémon OCs)).

Gim is holding a shield…
There’s the same castle in the background…
The gim is also standing on the rocks…
Plus the sky is overcast…

It’s okay though, if you draw it in a different way.

Editing requirements, please wait…
Also, silly me, I forgot about that thumbnail XD

Edit: There. The requirements have been changed to hopefully lend some originality to it.

And I didn’t say the same castle, just that there’s a castle in the background. Non-descript.

nice improvement.
But that sounds like a pain to draw (at least for me).

I already have a request to get to, so I might not do this one.

Working on it. Some things can be left out, too. I’m not real picky, as long as the point gets across.

I figure it’s best if the people who are taking up the request have some creative liberties. After all, we all have different styles.

I’m running low on replies, so I’m going to heart to show that I like/love it.
There will also be a poll in the future because I have a feeling there’s going to be some very good entries and quite honestly it’s going to be hard to choose one XD

Voidfluffy: Love it!! This may become basis for Hidden Land #2, Land of the Cursed (I don’t have a name for it yet, and I don’t wanna call it Ikana because of Majora’s Mask already using that as a region name).
Sad: Wow! I love this spin on it! This may end up being Hidden Land #1. I love it!
Targaryen1387: I love the font! Also, the GIM’s expression is so good!

Do you want me to change anything?


Nope! Looks great (See above)

Here is my finished thumbnail!
